 © Copyright 2017. SPCA of Polk County, TX

Founded in 1980, the SPCA of Polk County is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, working with the community and other rescue organizations. We rescue as many adoptable pets as we have space for at our shelter or temporary foster homes until permanent, loving homes can be found. Occasionally, we are overflowing and must turn-away animals.

We operate completely on donations from our supporters. We are not funded by other SPCA organizations nor do we receive federal funding. Our staff are all volunteers, working only for a lick, a cuddle, or a wag.

​Our goal is to protect animals in need, caring for them to the best of our ability. First, we try to reunite them with their owners. Then, we seek suitable homes for animals without owners. Only when absolutely necessary do we euthanize.
